    Not sure. We were told 6 weeks when we got them last Monday but I think they are younger.

    You definitely have an Easter Egger. The comb is blurry when I blow it up, but based on the redness of the comb and the three rows of peas (I think I see), I'm leaning toward a cockerel.

    He's definitely an Easter Egger roo.


    The friendliest chicks are almost always roos, unfortunately. :(

    I'm ok with having ONE rooster haha. I'll have to keep an eye on the other 16 to see if I spot another.
